Apparently [1] some patch levels of HP-UX 11.00 have issues with 
descriptor passing.  You can install the Quality Pack for 11.00 or set 
"UsePrivilegeSeparation no" in sshd_config (but be aware you'll forego 
the protection it offers).

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
